Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn't been cleared yet by doctors to resume playing due to a broken collarbone.
However, he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
"At this point, it's really about the risk of going back out there," Rodgers said during his radio show "I can't say this morning was the greatest news because I was hoping for full clearance to get back out there and we didn't get that. It's Tuesday so we have a good amount of time before the game."
Rodgers underwent more tests Tuesday.
"Well, Aaron wants to play, there's no question about it," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. But it's a medical situation. He has a clear understanding where he is as far as the process of getting back on the field. He feels good, and we're going to see what he can do tomorrow."
McCarthy denied reports that the Packers are considering placing Rodgers on injured reserve.
"There has been no internal conversation about shutting Aaron Rodgers down," McCarthy said. "Aaron wants to play. When he's healthy, he'll be given the opportunity to play."
